Hi! My name is Stephanie Turner and I am a stay at home mom! I have lived in Lubbock most of my life and one of my biggest passions is helping others! My children and family are my whole life and I can’t even begin to imagine going through the things that the families at the Ronald McDonald House do. We have been blessed beyond measure so I would love to give back and be there for those families in any way that I can! Our local Lubbock Ronald McDonald House covers over 68 counties and wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for our generous community and donors. Please help me to continue to raise funds and make our Ronald McDonald House a home away from home for families who truly need one during such a difficult time in their lives! Any and all donations, big or small, can make all the difference!
After I joined the family, when he was hospitalized for treatment we found ourselves sitting in the hospital for days at a time. Even though we lived in the area by this time and could reasonably stay in our home overnight or alternate sitting with him and going home for showers and naps, the days could be long and hard.
We were so glad to have the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms available for small moments of quiet and solitude from the hustle and bustle in the pediatric unit. The times when one of us would be ready for that break only to find the room was not open, due to lack of volunteer staffing, were so disheartening when those moments gave us a brief pause from the stressors of the situation.
I’d like to be involved in this project in hopes that the future families who need the programs of RMHC will be supported in the way that our family has been.
